Sarah Michelle Gellar Shows Love for Shannen Doherty

Sarah Michelle Gellar shows she is there for Shannen Doherty during her battle with cancer.

You may not have known they were friends but Sarah Michelle Gellar is full of love for Shannen Doherty.

Shannen recently revealed she was losing her battle with breast cancer - prompting a beautiful message from Sarah Michelle.

"My #mondaymuse (and really every day #muse) is my brave friend @theshando," she wrote on Instagram.

"I've always said she is one of the most loyal friends I've ever known, and now while she is facing the toughest journey of her life, she is sharing it with friends she has never met in the hopes of helping other people who are going through the same struggle. That's a true friend #FuckCancer."


Shannen, 45, opened up about her diagnosis last year, but recently revealed the cancer had spread to her lymph nodes.

She responded to Sarah Michelle's message with her own Instagram post, calling the 39-year-old actress "the total package".

"Smart, funny, beautiful and a great friend. She's that friend that is always there when you need her no matter what," Shannen wrote.

"Loyal and loving to the bone. I am blessed for many reasons and she's one of them. Love you SMG. #cancersucks #fightlikeagirl #friendshelpcancersuckalittleless."
